Dongwan Primary School

Miaoqun Chen, Zihan Zeng, Wang Ruoxiang, and their classmates, age 11, from Dongwan Primary School, are working on projects following the theme of “future fashion”. Following a two-month unit exploring the “future city” of Shenzhen from a designer’s standpoint, in which students considered problems faced today, then designed and eventually built sections of the city they imagined. Here, they have discussed and worked together to create fashion pieces that can represent their school in their future city by reaching to the past for deeper inspiration – touching on Dongwan Primary School’s history of pulling together the two villages of Dong and Wan in its inception.
